This looks fantastic. Could you post a close-up photo of the picture on the lamp?? I don't really understand how you made it. Thanks!

Thanks!  Do you mean the picture on the shade?  I'm out of town right now, but when I get back home, I'll take lots more detail shots to post! Smiley

Thank you all for the quick replies!

Just great!  I love that you went with the duck hunt dog also... he makes me giggle.

I just had to go with Duck Hunt, being the only game I remembered *ever* using the Zapper for. I'm so glad I did; a friend was trying to convince me to do a Mario shade, but it just wouldn't fit as well! Wink

Thank you all!  I was really surprised at how easy it was to make once all the prep (cutting and stuff) was out of the way. I'm going to make a matching body pillow, since I have some shirts that I cut which didn't make it to the quilt; and also a couple single pillows. Cheesy I can't wait to decorate my couch with everything! Wink

Thanks folks! I had fun stumbling down the halls tossing candy at people, hehehe.
877  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 27 ENTRIES / Duck Hunt NES zapper lamp- update pg.8-feat. in Nintendo Power & GamesMaster! :D on: May 01, 2008 06:51:57 PM
Check page 8 for a big update!  I've been featured in Nintendo Power magazine! Cheesy

So one day I picked up an NES Zapper (gun) and went "woah, that would make a cool lamp!" So... after playing around...

I gutted one... who knew this is what they looked like inside?

Then I stumbled around for ideas for the base and shade.  A regular cartridge was too small a base, so I measured one and made a 1.5 scale replica out of cardboard, and screwed the gun to it.  I weighted it with stones, and then tackled the shade.

I picked up a $2 shade at the re-store, a pack of fun foam, and voila!  After hours and hours of cutting pixellated shapes, I was done!  A little dab of glue to secure the shade, and... ta dah!

I didn't get any shots of it lit up, unfortunately, but it does work! I just didn't have a decent bulb. Sad

Oh. My. Goodness.  I think we channelled each other!  I did an NES lamp too!  I was going to wait to post it 'till later, but I think I'll post it right now so we can giggle over it! *giggle*
879  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / T-shirt quilt (my first quilt!) on: May 01, 2008 08:34:20 AM
My first quilt!  Looking through my t-shirt collection, I knew I had to part with some of the old ones from my 'buy the biggest shirt possible!' phase.  (I fit mediums, but had a phase where I bought XL and XXL all the time).  So... I couldn't bear to part with the memories, so I found a way to keep them in a different form!

My mom helped lots, it was probably about 50/50 between her any myself.  I love the final product, though- and every single shirt reminds me of something... and of course, the whole quilt will always remind me of making it with her! Smiley

Nope... no pliers.... talk about sore fingers... bend open... bend shut... I was bad and used my teeth for a few... *blush* My fingers were sore, but I didn't want to take another break; I just wanted to get it done! *giggle*
